black anchor on italian television. rightattacked by the during the iraqi war because i challenged their views. when i visited, it was clear, there was no way a military solution would be met with cheering. it was clear to me the country would be divided. the shiites would then take over. i wrote about this, was challenged by the right-wing government in italy. i was even called the n-word on-air by one of the ministers of berlusconi, who was pushed to resign, because of the media. then i worked in italy as a reporter, and then i decided to go to my own world, to egypt. i was there for three months, was an on-air journalist, i broadcast my tv show, until i start asking the tough questions to the establishment. after that, i was kicked out of the country.
